Some More Bubbles and Blue

For the last week, I played a bit more with bubbles :)

A new painting on a 60x80 cm stretched canvas was started as always with some home made gesso and recycled paper collage.

Then, I added one of the glimmer mists from The Tattered Angels Paint System - the Chalkboard spray called Decadence.

The next layer was created peeling a couple of cooked beetroots over the canvas and rubbing it in with my hands :)

And so on, and so on, at one point adding some of the Tattered Angels paint called Dirty Martini to each of the bubbles and trying out the new supplies from my great haul as well.

Yesterday, I covered it with a satin varnish tinted with the Phthalo blue paint by Amsterdam using a wet sponge and called it finished.
